33,000 tickets to the 2004 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, associate AD and
ticket manager Van Hilderbrand said on Monday. The orders exceed
Clemson's current supply of 20,000 tickets.
"We are delighted with the tremendous interest in this game
from our fans," said Hilderbrand. "I haven't seen demand like this
since the 1982 Orange Bowl when we were playing Nebraska for the
"We have been working under the same bowl ticket application system
for several years. There had been just one year in the last 20 that
we had to refund bowl ticket orders, but we obviously will have to
issue refunds this year."
Hilderbrand said he will be working throughout the remainder
of the week to determine the levels of ticket priority that can be
accommodated by the 20,000 tickets available. Ticket applicants will
be notified no later than Tuesday, December 16.
Hilderbrand will be working with Clemson administrators and
Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl officials in an effort to accommodate as
many Clemson fans as possible for the January 2, 2004 contest with
sixth ranked Tennessee.
